“The Board of Directors of GHIMA is pleased to offer Barry Libman Inc.’s Anatomy & Physiology for Coders course to its members.  AHIMA recommended an Anatomy and Physiology refresher for coders in preparation for the transition to IDC-10.  This course is the first step in learning the new ICD-10 Code Sets that will become effective in October 2014.  We are delighted to provide our members with this new service,” said Ed Farr, GHIMA President.

The 12-week course provides a comprehensive and complete review of the major body systems, as well as coverage of common diseases and disorders, frequently prescribed drugs, and common laboratory tests.  

The course uses the textbook and supplemental CD, Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology by Donald Rizzo. Also included are lesson notes, multi-media videos, interactive educational games, and full-color anatomical drawings to amplify course content. Multiple quizzes and comprehensive weekly assessments assure mastery of the material.

As an online course, students can access Anatomy & Physiology for Coders 24/7.
